Course Summary

The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is a first stage teaching qualification which has a teaching/training practice requirement. It is an ‘in service’ qualification designed for those working or wishing to work as teachers/trainers in England. It may be possible for pre-service teachers/trainers (defined as those who are not formally contracted as teachers/trainers) to also complete this qualification.
Candidates who successfully complete this qualification will have a fundamental understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a teacher/trainer in relation to legislation, equality, diversity, inclusivity and meeting the needs of learners. They will be able to use initial and diagnostic assessments and plan and deliver inclusive teaching and learning. They will also be able to assess learning and use appropriate resources to support effective learning.
The qualification covers the knowledge, skills and behaviours required by teachers/trainers in the further education and skills sector, such as:
*Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
*Planning to meet the needs of learners in education and training
*Delivering education and training
*Assessing learners in education and training
*Using resources for education and training

What Could I do Next

Successful candidates may progress to the DET (Diploma in Education and Training), PGCE and/or a BA in Education.
